A little over three weeks after announcing his departure from Rice, Calvin Anderson has whittled down his potential transfer to-do list.
According to Bruce Feldman of SI.com, Anderson has settled on a Top Five list of places to which he’s considering a transfer — Auburn, Michigan, Oklahoma, Texas and TCU. While they’re shown in alphabetical order here, that’s not how they stack up in the offensive lineman’s head.
From Feldman’s report, which includes a potential timeline for a decision:
The best way I’d put it now is that Texas and Michigan are first tier,” Anderson says. “Behind them is Auburn, and then [Oklahoma] and then TCU. It’s mostly fluid, though, from No. 1 through 4, with TCU a little less likely.” He has set a deadline to make his decision by March 25 — the day he turns 22 — but adds that he’ll likely make his decision before then.
Whichever of the five Anderson ultimately selects, he’ll be eligible to play immediately in 2018 as a graduate transfer.
After redshirting as a true freshman, Anderson started 36 straight games at left tackle for the Owls. He was honorable mention All-Conference USA each of the past two seasons.
